History of Craps
Craps is a dice game, developed in the United States in the 19th century as a simplified version of the dice game Hazard, popular at that time in Western Europe. Hazard was brought from London to New Orleans by a young wealthy gambler Bernard de Marigny, who simplified the game. Craps became extremely popular during World War II when most of the young Americans were brought into the army. In the street version of the game, a blanket was laid onto the street as a shooting surface. Later on, when the war was over, craps became a dominant game in the casinos in Las Vegas, in the Caribbean, and many casinos in Europe and Australia offered it. The game spread globally following the expansion of the online casinos after 2004.

A new feature that differentiates the traditional game from the online variant is the replacement of the shooter.

It launches the dice on the table, while the live dealer loads it with dice.
Live Craps Table
The game’s objective is to predict the two dice total, based on the selected bet. The selection of bet types is wide and each bet type has its own conditions and payouts. Each type of bet requires different dice totals to be rolled. Some bets are resolved in one roll while others may take several rolls. Craps has two phases, Come Out roll and Point roll. Bets can be placed during both phases. For each roll, the two dice are thrown by the dice launcher into the wall at the other side of the table. the result is displayed when the two dice have come to rest on the table.
The game begins with a Come Out roll for the Pass Line or Don’t Pass Line bets. If the sum of the two dice is 7 or 11, you win on the Pass Line bet. If the sum is 2 or 3, you win on the Don’t Pass Line bet. If any other totals are rolled (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10), the total is called The Point. The puck is now changed to ON and placed next to the rolled total on the betting grid or highlight. The game will remain in the Point Roll phase until a total of 7 is rolled, or the same point number is rolled once again.
Bets on the Pass Line and Don’t Pass Line are available only during the Come Out roll phase. If you joined the game during the Point Roll phase, you can participate in the roll by placing bets on Come or Don’t Come. These bets are much like the Pass and Don’t Pass Line bets, except that you will get a new rolled point number marked by your chips.
To play, select which bets you would like to make and place your chips on the betting table.
Craps Bet Types
All the bets in Craps are grouped into two categories: Multi-roll bets and One Roll bets, each being an independent bet and having its own payout.
Mufti-roll bets – These bets may not be settled on the first roll and will stay on the table until the total of 7 is rolled or the same chosen or established point number is rolled.
- Pass Line — This bet is available only during the Come Out roll phase. You win if the two dice total is a 7 or 11, and you lose if the rolled two dice total is 2, 3, or 12. During the Point roll, you win if the
two dice rolled the same point number before a 7.
- Don’t Pass — This bet is available only during the Come Out roll phase (puck shows “OFF”). During the Come Out roll, you win if the two dice rolled a 2 or 3, and you push if the rolled sum is 12 and your
bet is returned. If the two dice rolled 7 or 11, you lose. During the Point roll, you win if the two dice rolled a 7 before the same point number is rolled.
- Come — This bet is only available during the Point roll phase (puck shows “ON”). You may place as many Come bets as you wish while in this roll phase. The bets on Come win if 7 or 11 is rolled, and lose if
the total of 2, 3, or 12 is rolled. If any other total is rolled (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10), your chips are moved to the bottom left comer of the rolled number to mark the point. You win if the same point number is rolled again before a 7.
- Don’t Come — this bet is available only during the Point roll phase (puck shows “ON”). You may place as many Don’t Come bets as you wish while in this roll phase. The bets on Don’t Come win if the total of 2 or 3 is rolled, and you push if the rolled sum is 12 and your bet is returned. If the two dice rolled 7 or 11, you lose. If any other total is rolled (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10), your chips are moved to the upper left corner of the rolled total to mark the point. You win if a total of 7 is rolled before the same point number is rolled again.
- Take Odds — this bet is available only for Pass Line or Come bets that have an established point. A circular bet spot will appear next to your bet to show that this bet can be placed. This is called “Take Odds” because it pays true odds of the established point against a 7. This bet will win together with your Pass Line or Come bet. The maximum Odds bet that can be placed is based on the multiplier specified in the Bet Limits and is multiplied by your bet on Pass Line or Come bet accordingly.
- Lay Odds — this bet is available only for Don’t Pass or Don’t Come bets that have an established point. A circular bet spot will appear next to your bet to show that this bet can be placed. This bet also pays true odds against the established point and will win together with your Don’t Pass or Don’t Come bet. The maximum Odds bet that can be placed is based on the multiplier specified in the Bet Limits and is multiplied by your bet on Don’t Pass or Don’t Come bet accordingly.
- A place to Win — you bet that a total of 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 will be rolled before a 7. Select the number that you believe will be rolled and place your bet on the corresponding bet spot labeled “WIN”. You win
if this number is rolled before 7.
- A place to Lose —you bet that 7 will be rolled before 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10. Select the number you would like to bet against and place your bets on the corresponding bet spot labeled “LOSE”. You win if 7 is
rolled before this number.
- Hardways — place your bet on any or all pairs of Hardways (2 and 2, 3 and 3, 4 and 4, and 5 and 5). You win if the exact pair is rolled. These bets lose if any combination of 7 is rolled or an easy
combination (not a pair) of the total is rolled. For example, a bet on Hardways 4 will win if the dice show 2 and 2, but lose if it shows 3 and 1 — or any combination of 7. You can choose to place your bet on
all Hard numbers by clicking/tapping on “HARDWAYS” on the betting grid. The bets will be placed as long as your balance is sufficient, and the maximum bet limit is not yet reached.
